Announcements Module

The announcements module allows you to post simple text announcements to your page. These announcements can contain links to other pages, or external resources or files. These announcements can be used to inform your supporters of goings on within the organization, redirect users to other pages where you may be doing reduced prices, or a variety of other purposes.

Adding an Announcement Module:

  1. Navigate to the page you wish to add the module to. Ensure you are in Edit mode by clicking Edit Page in the top right corner (if it says View Page, you are in Edit Mode).
  2. Hover over Page Settings, and from the drop down menu select Add a New Module.
  3. Select the module from the list, and either drag and drop it to where you want it, or use the arrows in the right hand corner of the module to determine where it will be placed.

Using the Announcement Module:

  1. In the Announcement pane, hover over the Pencil icon op_pencil_1.jpg associated with the module to configure it further.
  2. Enter a Title for your Announcement.
  3. Determine an Image for your Announcement. This can be a File, or a URL.
    • If File is selected, specify the file location (typically Files/) and either choose a current file or click Upload New File.
    • If URL is selected, specify the URL in the text box provided.
  4. Enter a description of your announcement. This is the body of the announcement. Note the typical tools necessary for Design such as Font Size/Style, Paragraph Style, Bold, Italics, Underline, as well as Hyperlinking.
    • Please note that Greater Giving has provided the ability to use Hypertext Markup Language in this area. Greater Giving however does not support HTML with its technical staff, and any unintended results from HTML coding most Greater Giving agents will not be able to assist you with.
  5. Determine if you would like a link on your announcement. You can choose a URL, Page, File, or even a User.
    • If File is selected, specify the file location (typically Files/) and either choose a current file or click Upload New File.
    • If URL is selected, specify the URL in the text box provided.
    • If Page is selected, use the drop down to specify one of your pages.
  6. Determine a Publish Date. This defaults to the current date.
  7. Determine an Expire Date. If no date is entered, the announcement will stay active.
  8. If you have multiple announcements, select a View Order.
  9. Click Update to save your new announcement!
